TEMS Bulldog
Any current 6 th grade student who would like to participate in sports next year for TEMS must complete an ImPACT test before they may participate. We are offering the following spring test dates. June 4th, 5th and 6th. The test is given after school in the library from 2:33-3:30 pm. Students must have a signed permission slip and arrange transportation home. Permission slips and sign-up sheets are in the cafeteria during lunch. More information about the ImPACT test and the permission slip is available on the TEMS website.
Welcoming Committee

The Welcoming committee would love for more parents to get involved! We match new TESD/TEMS parents with "veteran" TE parents whose kids have similar interests, i.e., where do you take piano lessons? If you speak a second language, etc.  
We could use your help.  All Welcome!

2018-2019 TEMS PTO Proposed Slate of Officers...
The final PTO meeting of the 2017-2018 school year will be on Wednesday, June 6 at 9am in the large group room.  All are welcome.  At this meeting we will vote on next year's budget and the slate of board members.  If you are unable to attend the meeting and would like to vote on the slate, click here for ballot.
Traffic Safety Reminders

With just a few weeks of school left, TESD urges all parents to exercise traffic safety around schools.  At this time of year, more students walk to and from schools.  In addition, with the bridge closure on Old Lancaster Road, we are anticipating new traffic patterns and additional delays in the mornings and afternoons around TEMS.  Please be reminded to:  Drive slowly and carefully in school parking lots and nearby roads, and discuss pedestrian safety with your children (look both ways, don't "walk and text," use crosswalks, etc).  Thank you!
